It just doesnt work. I've tested it 10 times - by running from point A to point B, apart from each other in ~200 meters. Runnig time without stealth with and without the talent didnt change. The same is within stealth. Does it work only in combat?

Movement speed bonuses do not stack. You always have the highest one active. Out of combat it's Sprint - it overrides Obfuscation. If you try running around with and without Obfuscation in-combat, you will see the difference.

Then, for example, if a marauder applies Predation to you, while you are in-combat, then Predation will override Obfuscation but again, they won't add up, you will just have the movement percentage of Predation. Once it ends, you are back to 15% from Obfuscation.

Force Speed is the highest movement boost in the game, that will override everything, in and out of combat.

Then this talent is an utterly useless, in PvE at least. And it's tooltip is misleading at best.
So there's no way to get full 135% movement speed while in stealth?

It's not that useless as it's the only way to have a permanent movement boost in-combat. For fights where boss moves a lot it can be nice, but yeah, you should be able to keep up without it in most cases.

Out of combat the highest movement speed in stealth is 85% normally or 200% with Force Speed/110% with Rocket Boost. In-combat movement speed in stealth is either 200% with Force Speed or 15% with Obfuscation, there are also couple other boosts on utilities that are used even less than Obfuscation.

There are another talents which add speed from using skills. 2 I think.
As for tank build they may make you faster then obfuscation for short time.
There is no ignorance - there is knowledge.
